Passomaggio Rosso-Abbazia Santa Anastasia

Cru blend of Nero d’Avola (80%) and late-picked Merlot (20%) from elevated vineyards towering over the sea; color, body, depth & aromas in abundance, rounded and fine-tuned by ideally moderate élevage in oak that maintains all its original fragrance. A supple, appealing red.
